United We Will Swim!

Dear Investors,

First of all – thank you so much for your support and investment! 

When we began this campaign seventy days ago, we genuinely didn’t think in our wildest dreams we would get anywhere close to the 560 individuals and organisations who have pledged their support and invested, from £100 up to the £100,000 invested by Big Society Capital, a total of £267,000. It is quite simply incredible and our heartfelt thanks go to each one of you.

As a Community Shareholder and co-owner of Govanhill Baths you are part of a story of courage and dedication that goes back to 2001. Since then, many people have helped in enumerable ways to first save the Baths from demolition and then to re-establish it as a keystone of the community. But our campaign has never been just about a building; it has been about the people who used, needed and loved Govanhill Baths.

 Our motto is ‘United We Will Swim’ and today with your help it has never been more true.

In the coming weeks we will be in touch to update you as we move forward, including with information on your rewards. Please contact us at anytime if you have any questions. Or why not drop in and have a look around your building!

Thank you.
